Yet another journal-type place for Darcy to rant, rave, and/or recuperate from the world.

57. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
58. I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett (Discworld, book 38 - I actually read this one, since I couldn't get a good audio copy in time, and I really wanted to read it a.s.a.p.)

These next seven books are the Apprentice Adept series by Piers Anthony.

58. Split Infinity
59. Blue Adept
60. Juxtaposition
61. Out of Phaze
62. Robot Adept
63. Unicorn Point
64. Phaze Doubt

I liked that septology, but I liked this next trilogy by Suzanne Collins a whole lot more. It's listed as a Young Adult series, but it's so awesome, with dark parts too, that I would recommend it to anyone.

65. Hunger Games
66. Hunger Games 2 - Catching Fire
67. Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)

I've started reading a book about Chess, which is looking like it will be finished within a day or two. I've decided that I'm not going to finish reading the Changeling: The Lost RPG manual though; I've gotten stuck in the middle of chapter 3, which is the longest of four, and is so dry I just can never concentrate on it properly.


  1. I really hope I don't come off sounding creepy, but I found your site because you did an audio reading for "An Ode to Baha'u'llah" on LibriVox and I clicked your link by accident. It caught my attention that you are a big reader--fantasy especially, it appears--and I had to recommend the site because it has great updates on authors and whatnot. Also, you are very cool for being a Terry Pratchett fan. Awesomesauce. Out of curiosity, have you tried Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn Trilogy or Megan Whalen Turner's The Thief series? You may also enjoy "Assassin's Apprentice" by Robin Hobb, or "The Curse of Chalion" by Lois McMaster Bujold. (Fantasy is my favorite.)

    I apologize for being such a stalker. Hope you have a good day!

  2. Thanks for the recommendations. I'm currently in the middle book of a trilogy, but I'll come back to this list later.
